Interview: Vicki Bennett: People Like Us

DrivingFlyingRisingFalling from Vicki WFMU on Vimeo.

Since 1991 Vicki Bennett has been making CDs, radio, and A/V multimedia under the name People Like Us. Ever since she has been animating and recontextualising found footage collages with an equally witty and dark view of popular culture with a surrealistic edge, both pre-recorded and in a live setting.

Learning how is one of the key new literacy skills our youngsters will need if they are to be fully participative members of society.
